Remote Pilot Ground School

Aeroapps Technology
A complete ground school course to train for the FAA Remote Pilot - Small UAS Rating knowledge test (both initial and re-certification exams). If you plan to operate a UAV, UAS, or drone aircraft commercially, an FAA Remote Pilot certificate with small UAS rating is required.

Includes 10 hours of lessons, 420 practice questions, and 175 flashcards to prepare for commercial drone operations under Part 107. This course is perfect for those with zero experience, but even experienced drone pilots will benefit for the in-depth subject matter coverage.

If you complete the course, you will pass the FAA exam on the first try. Completion of the course requires completion of all lessons, stage checks, the end of course exam, and passing 5 simulated FAA exams with an average score of 90%.

Your purchase includes unlimited lifetime access and question bank updates, so that you can continue to use the course for the FAA's recurrent exam required every two years.

Non-US citizens who can read, write, speak, and understand English may obtain an FAA remote pilot certificate per FAR 107.61.


Ten hours of lesson content (based on average completion time), covering all areas tested by the FAA on the Remote Pilot exam.

After completing the course, prepare for the FAA exam with over 400 practice questions, including official FAA questions. FlightReady identifies your weakest areas to focus your efforts, rather than wasting time answering questions you've already mastered.

▸ Create a practice session targeting only those questions that you miss most often
▸ Create new session from all missed questions in the previous session
▸ Create custom study sessions that include or exclude questions that require referencing figures, the use of a flight computer, or that have already been answered. Great for iPhones and on the go studying.
▸ Mark questions for later review within a session
▸ Flashcards
▸ Simulated FAA exams administered under the same rules as the real exam
▸ Detailed explanations, many with high resolution images
▸ Full text of applicable regulations where applicable
▸ Regular question bank updates


Proficiency is tracked using a proprietary algorithm that assigns a mastery level to each question, which helps your avoid wasting time re-answering mastered questions. Our statistics include:

▸ Average score on all simulated FAA exams.
▸ Mastery of the overall question bank
▸ Weakest subject areas
▸ Lesson completion status and quiz scores
▸ Total time spent in course

Reports can be shared via email, iMessage, and more.


▸ Multi-tasking support allows you to use FlightReady side by side with other apps
▸ Sync your data across all of your iOS devices
▸ Take the course in Guided or Review Mode. In Guided Mode, you will be taken through each lesson in sequence, and required to complete each and every activity, knowledge check, and quiz. Review Mode allows you to complete lessons out of order, or skip lessons entirely.
▸ Lifetime question bank updates are included


FlightReady is available with a volume educational discount, with upcoming support for student management via the app.
